1983 Tron Cartoon?

In 1983 if I had known there was an almost complete Tron rip-off animated film called Computer Nuclear Warship Bombing Operation, you can bet your bottom dollar that I would have found a way to get a look at it. Thanks to Ion9 we now can see what is pretty much an animated Flynn and Sark going toe to toe. How cool is this entire show? Hm, I don’t know…but it does have a Pac-Man cameo so that means it must be pretty nice.

It appears the film was released internationally as Savior of the Earth and then later edited together with three other films before being unleashed on the world as Space Thunder Kids. Make sure to follow the link above to learn even more about this…interesting…animated feature.
